i have seen a few xx9 R exhausts for sale. are they any different than a regular can?
If it is an '03 exhaust from the US, it does not have a cat in it, so it is different. The midpipe also did not have a cat in it for this year. This was an "extra" exhaust that came with the bike. The Euro models also carried this "extra" exhaust into the next years as well but the US version did not. If you want to be sure, ask the seller to take a good photo of the inside of the inlet pipe on the right, the cat is clearly visible, so it should not be there if it is the "R" extra exhaust.Nope. And anyone selling a "R" exhaust for more than $50 just because it came off a R is BS.
